Drug Charges Archives

Disturbance call leads to drug charges for man in South Carolina

Being convicted of a drug-related crime can affect several different areas of a person's life. Even if the charges are less severe, loss of employment and/or reputation in the community can be difficult to overcome. People often seek to protect these areas of life when facing drug charges, but many find the process to be complex, prompting a need to seek legal counsel. This may be the case for a deputy coroner who is facing multiple charges in South Carolina.

Man wanted on meth distribution charge in South Carolina

There are varying degrees of drug charges, most of which can seriously alter a person's life.

Residents of South Carolina who are suspected of drug crimes may find it beneficial to seek help in defending against the charges.

Drug charges filed against school board member and companion

When South Carolina residents face accusations of drug crimes, the consequences can be serious. However, not all drug charges lead to time behind bars.

This intervention program can clear an accused person's record of drug offenses upon completion of community service, fee payments and counseling.

Accusations of continuing his criminal activities while he was behind bars were made against a 28-year-old inmate of a correctional institution in South Carolina.

Drug crimes allegations leads to arrest of teacher's aide

Shortly after midnight on a recent Sunday morning, South Carolina troopers noticed a car driving erratically on U.S. 17 toward Georgetown. They followed the car and pulled the driver over -- not realizing that the occupants were wanted on drug charges. The driver allegedly said he did not have his driver's license with him; he provided a name but said he could not remember his Social Security number. He was asked to exit the car, and troopers claim they could smell alcohol on him. Officers also said they noticed the passenger trying to hide something, but he refused to answer their questions and managed to flee the scene.
